Marauders beat Arabians 3-2

The Mt. Vernon boy tennis team won its first Hoosier Heritage Conference match Monday after defeating visiting Pendleton Heights 3-2.

The host Marauders got on the board early to take a 1-0 lead with a win at No. 2 doubles. Doubles partners Peyton Meadors and Sam McCarty won their match 6-0, 6-1 to improve to 7-0 on the season.

Down 1-2 to the Arabians, Mt. Vernon reclaimed the momentum with Brayden Browning and Sam Frye tying up the dual with a 6-0, 6-3 victory at No. 1 doubles. The finale unfolded at No. 2 singles as Matthew McCullough charged back to win 7-5, 6-1.

“Huge win for us. After the Muncie Invite, I thought we’d come out a little slow and we did. (No. 2) dubs is almost an automatic point each night. No. 1 dubs stepped up after a slow start and McCullough was the hero,” Mt. Vernon head coach Gabe Muterspaugh said. “Great win against a conference, sectional foe.”
